Do Not Resuscitate / Do Not Attempt Resuscitation orders (DNAR/DNR forms) are often added to patients notes, as an indication that should the patient stop breathing, or their heart stops, no attempt at all will be made to resuscitate them. This in itself will cause distress to patients and relatives alike if not handled sensitively.
We would really like to hear the circumstances in which you found out about a DNAR - good or bad - and also any other comments you have about end of life treatment and your hospital experience in general. Your personal details, names etc. will not be published - please contact us in confidence here. If you would just like to send a message without it being published, that’s fine as well - just add a line somewhere to say ‘don’t publish’.
None of your details or information will ever be passed on to other people or organisations or added to mailing lists.
Have Your Say: Please share your own views, stories or opinions. Your personal details will not be published, and your email address will not be used for advertising or passed on
